Asda only do one type of comforter blanket to my knowledge that is there own so you will not have any confusion in knowing which one it is in the store when you go to buy it. Your only choice will be colour, the picture above shows the blue one but the same one is also available in pink and white.
The teddy on comforter is a nice size, not too big or heavy that it is going to pull the blanket part out of baby's hands when they are holding it or make it fall off there chair. It isn't too small either which my daughter loved to hold in both hands as she got to a few months old and rub on her face when tired.
The teddy is made out of the same lovely soft material that the blanket part is made of unlike others I have brought so is all soft and comforting.
The material part is a good size too and very thick so feels lovely to hold.
There are two of these in our house the pink and the white. Both have had over 18 months worth of daily use and have been through the washer at least once a week yet are still as lovely as the day I brought them, they haven't lost any of there shape, colour or softness.
Casey loves these and has one down stairs for in the day and another in her room for of a night.
I would recommend these to anyone, they are great quality and value for money.
My daughter received this lovely bear comforter from the George range at Asda in both pink and cream when she was born. It is also available in blue. It costs £4 and is available in store and online.
It is a small soft brown bear clutching a soft blanket in either cream, pink or blue. It feels so lovely and soft and is the perfect size for little hands and is light weight. It makes a lovely gift for new babies.
Now my daughter is a little older (7 months) she loves to snuggle hers as she goes to sleep, or if her gums are sore to suck on the blanket. Sometimes like if she is poorly she just likes to hold it close. Thankfully we have two as it literally goes everywhere with her so at least when one is in the wash we have a spare. They really do wash well and are still as soft as they were at the start and still look new despite being very much loved.
I have to say I am really impressed with these, they are excellent quality, and lovely and soft despite being washed many times. They wash well and are a really lovely gift and are very well made. I can certainly see my daughter loving hers for quite some time to come.

My daughter was given a variety of different gifts when she was born, some useful and some not so useful. One thing that she was given by her uncle was something that she never really took an interest in until a year or so ago.
The teddy bear comforter is available to purchase from Asda either in store or online and costs £4. It is available to buy in the traditional pink or blue and also in a neutral cream colour. My daughter was given the cream teddy bear comforter.
The comforter is very cute to look at with a small teddy bear, around 5 centimetres high attached to the corner of a square blanket type material. The teddy bear is brown in colour on each of the different coloured comforters whether it's pink or neutral cream. The teddy bear is cute to look at and has a snuggly type nature to it. The material of the blanket part is absolutely divine; it's so soft to the touch. This part isn't that large at approximately 30 centimetres each side.
As I said, my daughter received this as a gift when she was first born (three and a half years ago now!) and despite leaving it around her and trying to get her to hold and comfort it, she wasn't interested in the slightest. This definitely isn't the comforters fault though as she didn't use anything for comfort. My friends baby had one a couple of years ago and he still snuggles up to his now so they are a great soother for some children. Since my daughter has been role playing with baby dolls of her own, she seems to play with this comforter as if it's a toy and puts it in the dollies cot with dolls and uses it as a comforter for her dolls, it's so cute!
The teddy bear comforter didn't get any use in the early days so didn't need washing, however, now she uses it as part of her play the comforter does get quite mucky. I wash it on a 40 degree wash and let it hang dry and it comes out as good as new and the softness of the material is just as soft as it was at the start. The comfort factor definitely isn't compromised from washing it.
At only £4, I think this is a great price to pay for a baby's comforter, the quality is amazing for the price and if you skipped off to Mothercare for something similar I'm sure you'd pay atleast double the price. It's a perfect gift for an expectant mother and should give comfort to babies.
Asda teddy bear comforter
When our little girl was born she was very lucky to receive a number of beautiful and thoughtful gifts, which included a number of different comforters including the George Asda bear comforter. A comforter is usually just a small square of very soft material attached to some sort of cute teddy bear or animal.
The George Asda teddy bear comforter is well made, sturdy and so far has survived being thrown through the washing machine and then hung over the radiator to dry. It is incredibly soft and cute and as far as a baby's toy goes it is nice if not a little boring, but then small baby's don't require a huge amount of stimulation all the time from all of their toys.
As far as I am aware the George Asda teddy bear comforter comes in two different colours, which very unoriginally are baby blue or baby pink. I do like the colours blue and pink as much as the next person but it would be wonderful to see more baby's toys like these comforters in a range of more vibrant and interesting colours. Personally, I find a lot of these comforters to be extremely cute but they are all just a bit generic and bland. In my experience my baby's favourite toys all seem to come from the Lamaze range of small toys and I assume this is because they are all brightly coloured with different patterns and make some sort of noise whether it be through crinkly material or a rattle. However, the George Asda teddy bear comforter does look very sweet in the bottom of her crib at night time.
The Asda teddy bear comforter can be bought in most of the stores that sell baby items or online for around £4 each. So far our little lady hasn't shown all the much interest in the comforter, but I do like to play some peek a boo with it and it is lovely and soft to stroke her little hands with. However, my niece who has a similar Asda bunny comforter takes it absolutely everywhere with her and my sister in law deeply regrets not buying multiples of it just in case the comforter gets lost.
Personally, I am not sure that I would recommend buying the George Asda teddy bear comforter but it did make a lovely small gift to include with a card. However, in my opinion I would opt for the Lamaze toys every time.
Three out of five stars.
This is a review of the Asda Teddy Bear Comforter our daughter was bought as a gift at birth. The one she has is actually cream but I believe it is available in blue and pink as well. We were also bought one with an elephant on it which came from Tesco so it was interesting to see which one she liked best and played with.
The comforter is a small square of soft furry material with a tiny teddy bear in the corner that is attached or sort of clutching the material. It is very soft and sweet and looks cute. The bear is a nice looking toy and again soft but with a slightly different texture to the blanket so quite interesting to stroke and hold.
We took the comforter out with us many times when she was a baby so she had something to touch and feel as we were out and about. If the comforter ever got a bit dirty from being dropped or milk go on to it we just put it in the wash with other lights and it was clean and smelling good straight away.
Once she got a little older, my daughter was just not bothered about this comforter and it was never something she chose to play with so it ended up sitting on the side most of the time. The same can be said for the elephant one which is in her room a bit redundant. She has favourite soft toys and blankets but the comforters are just not her choice of item.
Price and availability
The comforters are priced at £4 which is reasonable, especially if your child takes to theirs! I have seen many parents distraught over losing these so if it is a favourite toy then perhaps buy a spare one to hide away for future use.
I thought this would be something my daughter would love, I had something similar when I was a child and got quite attached but for her she is just not bothered and it's not something I believe should be forced upon them to love. Having said that I still think they are cute and have bought a new similar one for our forthcoming arrival to try out although she really could have her sister's unused ones seeing as she isn't bothered about them!
I do think these make a nice cost effective gift for a new baby but clearly not every child will be impressed by this comforter. It's worth a try if it brings you a bit of peace at bed time and they do look rather sweet.
